3 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Although the basic construction of handsaws is similar, many differences are found in the length and shape of the blade and the number and shape of the teeth.

4 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools High-quality saws have a taper-ground blade. The blade is thinner along its back than at its cutting edge.

5 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools An 8-point saw has larger teeth and fewer teeth per inch than an 11-point saw.

6 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools The knife-shaped teeth of a crosscut saw are effective for cutting across the grain.

7 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Compass saws are used to cut curves or internal openings.

8 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Backsaws may be used with a miter box to cut accurate angled or straight cuts in finish work.

9 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Dovetail saws are used to make fine cuts in molding or other small trim materials.

10 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Coping saws are used to make fine, irregular cuts in thin materials.

11 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools The chisel shaped teeth of ripsaws are effective for cutting with the grain.

12 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools The proper sawing technique results in accurate cuts while minimizing accidents.

13 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Hacksaws are used to cut metals.

14 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Nail saws are used to cut nails so that framing members can be more easily separated.

15 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Wood chisels include flooring chisels and butt chisels. A flooring chisel is used for rough work. A butt chisel is used to mortise lumber for door hinges and other types of finish hardware.

16 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools When using a wood chisel, keep both hands behind the cutting action of the chisel, and cut away from the body.

17 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Cold chisels are used to cut metals and chip concrete. Cold chisel heads must be properly ground to prevent chips from becoming detached from a mushroomed head.

18 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Utility knives are used to cut materials such as gypsum board, fiberboard, and insulation.

19 Unit 11 Sawing and Cutting Tools Aviation snips are used to cut metal framing members.
